This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Or Bibles and ammo.
Joe Rogan and Steven Crowder merch.
A gold-plated pocket-sized Ben Shapiro figurine (a.k.a. life-size).
Rittenhouse T-shirts and MAGA hats.

You could waste your cash on that dross... Or just simply buy more indie games from publishers who make very little.
Ammo isn't dross. The rest of the list is up to whatever. 😉

Greetings!

I'm a firm believer in keeping the Bible in one hand, and a gun in the other hand.

I have my King James Bible, and a sweet, sweet AR-15, with plenty of ammunition ready to go.

That way, when I am out in the wilderness amidst Nature, I can preach the Word of the Lord to the lost as I go hunting. ;D

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK
I like AR-15s. Heck, I own 2 of them. But I prefer my AR-10.
Mathematically, that's 33% fewer AR-units of badscarymean, so it's safer!  😉

SR-25 for me (same but different I know).   I deer hunt with my evil black .308 rifle and since its deer season, it looks like (deer) meat is back on the menu boys!

Must you do penance?  And if so, then what?

I must confess; I have resisted the urge to purchase the product which I shouldn't have purchased, for 5 years now.  I have wanted to "borrow" ideas from the product, without giving the authors my money.  I have done so previously, but I have been aggravated by the lack of a print copy to reference.  So now; I have given in, against my better judgement.  If it helps my case any; I was spending other peoples' money, and not my own.

All I have left to cling to; is not giving the authors credit publicly, for creating a game full of good ideas.



That being said: Buy Used.

Au contraire, start singing the praises of said book. And mix the praises with right wing talking points or better yet Images/gifs.

That might send The Mob after them, because to them if some terribad person follows you/likes your stuff/re-tweets/etc it must mean you're also a terribad person.

I have now bought in, to a very openly liberal group of people.  I have been looking at several RPG's for years now; which I didn't already own.  I finally pulled the trigger "like Rittenhouse", and purchased this creative work.  2 Volumes, even.  Forgive me father, for i have sinned. 

It's the 13th Age Core Rulebook, and the 13th Age Bestiary.  I hope the authors feel the need to gargle diesel fuel now, because i have purchased their RPG.  Ha!!!

I find that when a publisher or author is horrible, I generally lose all desire to read or play their product. So I'm not tempted to buy it. It doesn't have to be Wokeness, there are plenty of other ways to be horrible.

Penance may not be the right word. I try to keep perspective, and have to be okay with some coming through. If I lose that perspective, I become what I hate.

For example, my household no longer purchases from Amazon. Nearly five months clean :). But I refuse to research all websites and apps that use AWS. Now, effectively I am boycotting the part of their business they lose money on, and supporting their profit cow, but it is something, and close to 50 people know I don’t support them due to their ideology and censorship. That has to be good enough for me.

I recently backed the remaster of Into the Odd. The creator was the headliner for that bail fund project summer before last. Technically, since he is British, I see his actions as a foreigner who helped fund domestic terrorism. Having perspective, what I really think is he probably is super left, caught up with everything going on at the time, and likely a political twat. But he is not my enemy, and I am not his. I will get hours of fun out of the work. And it is quality.

I say play your game, keep perspective, and make an impact where you can.

Same for me... It's more of a case that I've already bought a load of their gear from them. And then i find out they are woke as fuk. :(

Hmm. I still use my old Paizo stuff, if the specific content does not contain much objectionable content. I just don't want to buy/use any new Paizo stuff. Same with WoTC.

Do not use their own vile tactics. They do this to people, and eachother. The minute we start doing it they will use it as ammo and "proof". Not to mention it just drags us down to their degraded level. Let them eat their own.

I never understood spending hard earned money with a business that obviously hates you.  There are plenty of good ideas and products out there offered by people who don't.
